anyone can recommend good source of mystery snails?

I'd like to add some mystery snails for my shrimp tank.
I would prefer to buy from someone who raises them themselves, and be sure they are safe from any parasite.
Can anyone recommend a seller that raises them themselves (and indoors)

(I am back to the hobby after ten years, I had an aquarium with small fish and shrimp, then somehow leeches were introduced, the most disgusting leeches imaginable. I couldn't put my hand in the water. Don't want to ever deal with this again, so yes, I am paranoid, for good reason )

Uhh....no offense, but why not just buy some from petsmart and quarantine them for a while?

So many fish/plants/inverts to keep, not enough aquaria.

small condo, no place for quarantine tank, and no time to deal with it.
Would prefer to pay a higher price and just get something safe.

I'd give Aquabid a try. Everywhere else and you are probably gonna get some real unpleasant shipping fees associated with just a snail order.

aquatic arts is awesome, if you sign up for weekly newsletter you can get a discount. they have a sale now on mystery snails, but shipping will be huge unless you can order some other goodies!

Fish+Plants thanks you!!
